Full description:

Detached house for sale in Guardea (TR), with garden, surrounding land, magnificent panoramic views and opportunities for development.

The spacious house is located in Guardea (Terni) in the "Castello del Poggio", on a hill-top with stunning views over the Tiber and only a stone’s throw from the beautiful nature reserve, Oasi di Alviano. An iron gate in the castle walls gives access to an inner courtyard, the entrance to the castle and a small group of houses built along the crenellated walls.
The house is on three floors and has a private garden of about 120 m2. On the lower level, there is a large multipurpose room, a toilet with hand basin, a utility room containing the central heating system and direct access to the garden. Since this floor has a separate entrance, it could be converted to a self-contained living unit. Stairs lead down from this floor to a cellar where the supplementary water tanks are located.
On the first floor, there is a large living room with a fireplace, visible also from the adjacent dining room, which in turn leads onto the kitchen. There is also a bedroom with an en suite bathroom overlooking the garden.
On the second floor, there are three bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms.

At the end of the private garden, there is an ancient ruin that could be rebuilt on its present foundations or extended to create a larger property, subject to permissions.

The house stands in a unique location on the ramparts of one of Italy’s most important historic castles; a secure place where the atmosphere is timeless, steeped in history, tranquil, and surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside in Umbria.
The private garden, enriched with roses, aromatic plants and fruit trees, is the ideal place to relax in complete privacy.
Land belonging to the property extends well beyond the castle walls and can be accessed through the property’s own private iron door in the perimeter wall.

“Castello del Poggio” was built by the Normans in 1034 on a pre-existing 7th century Byzantine fortress. Recent research suggests that one of history’s greatest scientists, Galileo Galilei, stayed at “Castello del Poggio”. The castle is considered a National Monument both for its unusual military architecture and the historical significance of the events that occurred there.
The property is only 800 m from the centre of the village of Guardea, which has all the basic amenities. It is only 45 km from Terni, 130 km from Rome’s International Airport, 70 km from Umbria International Airport at Perugia, and 25 km from Orvieto, one of the areas finest hilltop cities.

About Coldwell Banker Assisi , Italy

Marco Serena and Daniela Rossi, owners of the Real Estate Agency Coldwell Banker in Assisi and Bastia Umbra, with over twenty years of experience, have chosen to dedicate themselves to an ambitious project that aims to meet the needs of a clientele who search for a greater professionalism and quality of services. The mission is to differentiate themselves in the current real estate market with a supply of highly qualified and professional services, to accompany clients in the delicate phase of purchase up to the final act of sale, dedicating to them technical and legal consultants. The choice of the Coldwell Banker brand propels us into an international luxury market that in the last years ended with a positive balance, a sign that Italy has not lost its fascination for foreigners seeking a home abroad.
The choice of Assisi is not random. Located in the centre of Umbria and Italy, Assisi has always attracted visitors from all cultures. Many have left some testimonials (Dante Alighieri, Simone Weil, Giosuč Carducci…) other have decided to live here permanently (from Sesto Properzio, Giotto, Dono Doni, Federico Mason Perkins to the more actual Mario Draghi, Colin Firth, Mogol, just to name a few of them). What Assisi offers is impossible to find elsewhere: situated on the slopes of Mount Subasio Natural Park in a beautiful natural environment, it has architectural treasures of immense value. The focused atmosphere of spirituality and peace contributes to the high quality of life. But Assisi is
not a Museum, city life is not tied to consumerist fashions but to its soul that is perceived in its streets, where local crafts continues to produce masterpieces in the rites of the Basilica, in folklore, in buildings that tell a great story. For all these reasons, Assisi, with the Basilica of Saint Francis, of Santa Maria degli Angeli, together with the other Franciscan places, since 2000 is a world heritage site Unesco, thanks to the recognition of the uniqueness of the cultural landscape composed of tangible and intangible assets. WHY COLDWELL BANKER “We chose to link top a site such as Assisi, which needs no introduction, a real estate reality such as offered by Coldwell Banker brand. Our choice was the result of a careful planning and territorial analysis and the effort to create a network capable of projecting itself in an international perspective.
